Easy Twinkies Copy Cat Recipe

If you are looking for an Easy Twinkies Copy Cat Recipe,  I have one for ya!

This recipe inspirations comes just after Hostess, the maker of Twinkies, Ding Dongs and Wonder Bread, announced it is going out of business.  It’s truly a sad day for all.  What’s even more sad is the fact that Twinkies are selling on Amazon for a crazy amount of money.

Don’t worry though, you can still make your cream puffed pastry in your own kitchen!  Here’s the Best Twinkies Copy Cat Recipe I have ever tried!  Here’s a pan that works perfectly for this recipe.  You don’t have to have this pan because you can make molds out of tin foil too.

  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees f.
  • Use a molded pan (as seen in my post) or create your own molds by wrapping a square seasoning jar around tin foil to create the mold shape. Place these molds that you create, side by side on a cookie sheet.
  • Start making the cake part:
  • Beat the egg whites until stiff (it should peak when you lift your blender beaters up from the egg whites)
  • In a separate bowl, mix together the cake mix and water. After it's blended with no lumps (about 2 minutes) fold in the egg whites.
  • Pour the batter into the molds, filling each mold about 3/4 of an inch.
  • Bake for about 30 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Let the cakes cool before filling them.
  • Create the Filling:
  • Combine salt with the hot water in a small bowl. Stir it long enough for the salt to dissolve. Let cool.
  • Combine the marshmallow creme, shortening, powdered sugar, and vanilla in a medium bowl and mix with a blender until fluffy.
  • Next, add the salt water mixture in the last step of blending the filling.
  • Fill the cooled pound cakes with this filling by poking three holes in the bottom of each cake. I used a straw to do this. I moved the straw around to open the inside of the cake part leaving the hole the same size as the straw.
  • Use a pastry bag to insert the filling mixture into the holes you just created.
  • Enjoy!
